Business Technology Association Announces Launch of PRO Dealer Group26 Apr, 2012
Kansas City, MO — April 2012 - The Business Technology Association has launched a new office technology industry dealer peer collaboration group focused on bringing non-competing dealers together to share best practices and further strengthen the revenue performance of each member dealership. PRO Dealer Group currently has 15 founding member dealerships and is now opening the group to additional members.
"In today's competitive marketplace, it is very important for dealers to ensure they have strategically positioned their companies for ongoing success," said PRO Dealer Group President Matt Jackson, president of Copynet Office Systems Inc., Plano Texas. "Through interaction on a regular basis with non-competing fellow dealers, our members will be able to better plan for ongoing future success by gaining insight and sharing business practice ideas from one another. In addition, our group's relationship with Strategic Business Associates (SBA) will help each of us identify the best means to improve the profitability of our companies."
SBA is a business and management consulting service led by John Hey and John Hanson that works with leading entrepreneurs in the U.S. office technology industry. Through an annual survey process, members of the PRO Dealer Group will submit their financial information to SBA. The information will be confidentially organized, analyzed and placed into a President's Report so that each member can see how his or her dealership is doing as compared to the aggregate of the other members and learn from the process with SBA's guidance.
The next meeting of the PRO Dealer Group will take place June 10 in Las Vegas, Nev. For more information on the group or to receive a membership application, contact BTA Executive Director Brent Hoskins at email@example.com.
